M•A•C Senior Artist Cynthia Rivas rounds up a few of her favorite makeup trends at Fashion Week.
When it comes to makeup trends backstage, color is back: white, black, bronze, blue, red and everything in between!

Color was applied in a simple yet smart way at Adam Selman. A pop of saffron on the eyes paired with M·A·C Lipstick in ‘Lady Danger’ offered maximum impact with minimal effort. The face was beautifully sculpted with Matchmaster Foundation and Mineralize Powders for contour and highlight. The key for this look was application.
At Azede Jean-Pierre, key artist and our very own M·A·C Cosmetics Director of Makeup Artistry, Romero Jennings, created a look that can be taken off the runway and onto the street. He used M·A·C Eyeshadow in ‘Coppering’ on the eyes to create a winter glow that is gorgeous and sexy on all skin tones. At Calla, a sixties-inspired eye was made modern by using a soft wash of blue through the crease.

Contrast in texture was another strong makeup trend this season. Metallic eyeshadows and gloss texture were some of the most popular products used backstage, seen mainly on the eyes against matte skin. At Peter Som, key artist Tom Pecheux created a sixties-inspired eye using M·A·C Blacktrack Fluidline to shape the eye. Gloss was then applied over the entire lid to create a dewy look. This trend was kept more neutral at Mathieu Mirano by using warm browns to enhance the shape of the face. Gloss was then applied across the entire eyelid to contrast the matte, warm skin.
Key products this season: Gloss, Haute & Naughty Mascara, 224 blending brush.
